TheBalm – Stainiac Lip and Cheek Stain
Hi All 🙂
When I started watching youtube things interested me: Smokey eye, Liquid eyeliner pen and Lip and Cheek Stain . Lip and Cheek Stain was like magic for me. So finally when I got my hands on one of those what happened? Something like what happened with the first Dry shampoo I tried.
Price: $17.00 for full size.
What the blam says: TheBalm Stain
My Experience with theBalm Beauty Queen Stainiac Cheek and Lip Stain:
What I have is a baby of theBalm Beauty Queen Stainiac Cheek and Lip Stain. Someone in the family got it and I got my hands on it. So this Cruelty free baby has pretty berry shade in a gel form, soothing on the skin and feels cushiony when you touch it. Intensity does go down when I start blending it but manages to give light pink flush to cheeks even on my Dusky skin tone, surprised me to be frank. I rarely layer it but this can be layered, while blending, it will give you pinky finger. So after all the dab dab dab it manages to stay around 2-3 hours that’s all. If I start sweating even less infact it vanishes into thin air.
On lips, it never made an appearance but managed to dry it. Strictly no for me on lips. The baby has similar packaging to the mother only a miniature version. Plastic packaging with doe foot applicator. Travel friendly, so convenient that the Baby once got lost in the bag somewhere.
I will use it up but did I love it? Sadly no. The Lakme enrich satin lipstick P165 gives me that natural flush on cheeks everyone talks about plus it doubles as legit lipstick. I know this is raved but I failed to see why .
The affair with the balm stain has definitely ended but I’ll try rekindle it with some Tony moly cheek stain.
PS: If you have been reading my blog for some time you must know that I am crazy about new launches. But there are some products which I want to just talk about without dissecting it.

What do you think about this? Have you tried it?

I have this, it doesn’t work at all for me! 🙁 It looks cute in bottle but doesn’t fare well on lips and cheeks.
Exactly Vishakha . I dont understand why it is raved.
Seems like only wastage of money except the packaging!!!
Yeah. Normal packaging somehow the transparent tube works 🙂
If you have got it one of the bags then okay or else on feelunique.com you can get them at even 12GBP also. I love the staniac but only on my cheeks as on lips it is super light.
I would not buy or advise buying even if they cost 1GBP 🙂
Oh!la!la Want to give it a try 🙂
I would advise you to read more reviews before getting this 🙂
It always is a bad feeling when a much lusted product does not work out well 🙁
My Recent Post: Kaya Brightening and Firming Eye Serum Review
Yeah, in my case 90% of the raved product fails 🙁
sounds bit disappointing……….thanks for the review 🙂
Yeah, it dint work as I read it would be. Glad 🙂
Aw, too bad it didn’t live up to your expectations. It happens.
Yeah, the most raved product usually fail for me 🙁
Hey Swathi I can relate to your review! I got it in one of the Fab Bags… Disliked it so much that I discarded it during year-end makeup stash clean up process 😐
No wonder Anurima. I guess there are many who aren’t happy with it, despite all the hype 🙁
Shade looks pretty…. sad it didn’t workout.
For me only the shade was right 🙁
This is a dud fr me too I am still to review it.. The price is not justified at all
Exactly Natasha. I dont understand the hype.
What a waste of money it proved to be for me 🙁 I count this in one of 2015’s worst products !
Oh No, you bought the full size is it 🙁 I understand…
:'( :'( U din tell me before 😉
Dont make me cry now.Waaaaa 😉
Loving this lipstain! I really like the shade 🙂
Shade is the only good part in it 🙂
Thanks for sharing your honest review girl!
Thanks for the appreciation Paola 🙂
Packaging is the only thing that I liked! What’s the use if it doesn’t stay longer on cheeks and dries lips badly!
Exactly Mariyam 🙂
This is so cute!
Life, love and everything else
Yeah to Look 😛
This brand is new to me but tried Bodyshop lip cheek stain and sad to say, non favourable as well.
I dint go near TBS stain after reading your review.
It stains the lips unevenly which is why it didn’t work for me. Nice review!
Thanks Rakhshanda. Ahh, it dried my lips badly :/
Soo raved but nobody likes it much… 🙂 🙂
He he Yeah 🙂
I really like this color! 🙂
Color is gorgeous 🙂
I really love you 🙂 Happy New Year!
Can you follow me? I follow you 🙂
If you comment my post, I will comment your five posts! 🙂
Thanks a lot Sandra. Sure I will follow you and inform you :*
This works a bit on the lips with a heavy duty lip balm. But then again the stain effect is rather lost.
Yeah. I think MNY babylips does that under 200bucks 🙂
I totally agree with you Swathi. Even I don’t like this lip and cheek tint.
Has this worked for anyone :/
Thanks for such a honest review, shame it didn’t work well =(

Glad vale. Yeah 🙁
I got this in my September Fab Bag but I quite liked the stain it leaves on my lips to some extent.. I dont like using it on my cheeks though!
Oh thats great 🙂
ohh waste of money. I havent tries any of the product from the balm yet. the packaging looks cute
I have shadow pallet from the Balm thats good. But this is straight Dud!!!
I share same feeling…i did not like it much on cheeks as well…loved the cute pictures…
Thanks Anubhuti. Why it is famous *Thinking mode*
same thing i wonder…so much hype eh!
Oh what a sad thing, Swathi! The colour is really nice and the idea is great, but I product that doens’t last or even colour isn’t something I would purchase!
Thank you, your review has been precious.
Same here I really love the concept of Cheek and lip stain. That is the only good thing I would say. Thanks Valentina 🙂
Wonderful colour! ♡

I have a mini version of a lip stain from Benefit and it is soo amazing. You should give that a go 🙂
Would love to try it Harman, if I get a chance. Now since many Sephora’s are popping hoping to get my hands on it 🙂
Love you for this review.I was about to order my lipstain from beauty bay after following the hype.Frankly I was in two minds whether i should go ahead.thanks for helping me
Awww <3 Glad you found this helpful Anu. Going by many people's experience here, I am convinced its a Dud.
sad that this didnt work
when i saw the title im like wow i must try this 🙂
Yeah, All fancy name 🙂
this will work only for pinky white beauties, not for us Indians 🙁
Yeah. But even though the staying power is disappointing 🙁
I got it in my last fabbag too & have 2 of these now…but This looks like another waste! Lovely review Again 🙂
Since you got it in a bag , its okay. Otherwise its a waste of money . Thanks Richa 🙂
The balm products are always amazing but this came out as a very bad surprise.
Yeah same here. Because I have their eyeshadow palette and thats like top notch quality 🙂
